Alcohol is the Devil

Could someone please tell my body that it is no longer 21 and can't recover from drinking like it used to?! Thanks!

On that note, here is what I did this weekend...

Friday: I went to lunch with Erin to Jimmy John's! It is waaaaay better than Subway, if you ask me. And they have GIANT pickles!
#12 with pickle!!!

I came home from work with a little headache, which turned into a lovely hormonal migraine. This translates to I spent the night on the couch smashing my head into a pillow so it would stop hurting. I could have taken one of my migraine pills but then would have to deal with not being able to feel my face from the muscle relaxer in it. I just don't like that feeling unless I'm dying, so I opted out. I did enjoy Friday Night Lights. I think it was the series finale which makes me sad b/c I don't know what else I can watch on Fridays at 8 when I'm being lame at home on the couch.

Saturday: I woke up early and still had a headache and decided on some Advil. Laura and I went to the Farmers' Market, where I bought apricots, cherries (bing and ranier), a scone and my lovely breakfast sandwich with egg, bacon and sausage. I walked around with Laura and her bandmate and hung posters for their show this Saturday that I won't be able to go to b/c I have a race and a baseball game in Spokane. :(  Then we went and wandered around Winco and got some goodies. I went home, put my food away and crashed on the couch.

I got up, showered and got ready for the party that the Frenchies were throwing as a Bastille Day party. I was taking baked brie and put it in the oven while I was  getting ready. I baked it with blackberry jam. It was melty delicious. We has all sorts of good food! Beef and chicken kebabs with peppers and onions, homemade pizza, watermelon, pineapple and cupcakes!!! On top of that, there was white and red sangria! I think I ate too much of the fruit but it was good!!
Kebabs to be grilled

Having fun!

I ended up having too much fun and instead of getting up and running off the calories as I had planned, ended up barfing them out instead! I don't care who you are...barfing is not fun. Whether you are sick from drinking of sick from the flu...NO FUN!!! I ended up sleeping on the bathroom floor for a while.

Sunday: I slept in my clothes for a while... I barfed some more. I changed into shorts and a tshirt. I slept on the couch for a while. I went and saw HP7.2 and felt better. I came home and actually ate 2 pieces of buttered toast. I was feeling good, so I ate 2 more and some greek yogurt to get some good bacteria back into my system. I watered the garden and then watched '4 weddings and a funeral'. I LOVE British movies! Maybe it's just b/c I like how they talk? Most likely. Then I got ready for bed and was out by 10:30.

Needless to say, I have learned my lesson for a while. I am not as young as I used to be. Barfing is not fun. Hangovers are not fun.

How was your weekend?

When was the last time you imbibed too much of the drink and it bit you back? Hopefully I'm not alone in this! :)
